RISERIDER SYNERGYRider Synergy Concept: A new riding experience that enhances the joy of traditional trailriding with smooth support that feels as natural and alive as your own body. RS is a newphilosophy – a completely integrated system that becomes a reality when Power, Range,Interface and Weight are considered together.Rise brings you nearer the sensation that less “e” delivers more “bike”. Whether you craveriding greater distances, reaching more epic locations, improving efficiency or increasing thefrequency of your adventures, Rise beyond expectations and discover the new standard inMTB.RS POWERThe idea of creating our own power plant for Rise was daunting, but we believed that thiswould be the only way to realize our goal of a complete RS system for trail bikes.We had been looking for the best way to achieve this for a long time, so when Shimanoshared the plans for their new EP8 motor, we quickly realized that this awesome drive unitoffered us the perfect platform on which to build the RS Power concept.Working jointly, Orbea set out to develop proprietary electronics and batteries while Shimanocreated and delivered an exclusive motor configured to our own RS specifications.Power is only as useful as the manner in which it is applied. The EP8 RS power bandfeels alive, smooth and responsive, echoing your input and cadence.Max Torque: 60nmMax Speed: 25km/h (20mph in USA)RS RANGERise is intended for big rides. With two battery options Rise has enough fuel for thelongest days, it utilizes a very light and compact 360Wh main battery with an optional,patent-pending 252Wh range extender.The RS concept provides a great day on the trails because the lighter bike, lower powerconsumption and of course, the pedal-friendly weight and assistance extends battery lifeby a factor of over 1.5x. This means the 360Wh RS Battery of Rise delivers ride timesand ranges similar to a 540Wh battery in a typical eBike. 3-4 hour ride time.Adding the RS Range Extender gives ride times comparable to a 900Wh battery on a regular ebike. That’s 8 hours and over 4,000m of climbing in Eco mode.RS INTERFACEThe elegance of simplicity is undeniable. Many riders spend hours removing excess weight,noise and visual distractions from their bikes. We have embraced data collection with cyclingcomputers and smartphones but often stop short of attaching large displays on ourhandlebars or top tubes.With a traditional ebike, displays, sensors, extra wires and large glowing buttons arestandard and unavoidable. For us, the option of a traditional, uncluttered machine is a criticalaspect of the RS philosophy.The RS Interface is sleek, but doesn’t lack expandability. The simplest configuration consistsof a discreet rocker switch near the left brake lever to control assistance level and a small,inline junction box with two tiny LEDs that provides support mode info and smartlybroadcasts wireless data.RS WEIGHTThe RS Motor, Battery and Electronics are lighter than other eBike systems by over half,Rise can weight as little as 16 kg or 36lbs.
